    Wind and Jazz Ensembles in concert with Max Marshall '07

    The Department of Music presents a concert by the Denison Wind Ensemble and Denison Jazz Ensemble featuring the artistry of Denison alumnus Max Marshall '07. The wind ensemble and jazz ensemble are directed by Christopher Westover and Pete Mills, respectively. Marshall is a graduate of Denison and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and now has a career as a jazz pianist based in New York City. He joins the wind and jazz ensembles in performances of Maslanka’s Second Piano Concerto and big-band jazz standards.

    Originally from Chicago and now based in New York, Marshall has performed throughout the United States with groups such as El Fuego Lento, Line of Sight and the Latin-Fusion group, the Media Noche Trio. In 2010, He was invited to participate in the Steans Institute for Young Jazz Artists, in residence at Chicago's Ravinia Festival. He has appeared at several notable venues including the Blue Wisp in Cincinnati, the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis, Cleopatra’s Needle in New York, and twice at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention. An active recording artist, Marshall has appeared on nearly a dozen albums, and has performed with several jazz luminaries including Ignacio Berroa, Terrell Stafford, Rufus Reid, Pete McCann and Michael Spiro.
